Instead of holding private appointments, Carolina Herrera presented her pre-fall collection via a cocktail party in her showroom with vignettes of models. The decision made perfect sense: These clothes had a playful spirit and could brighten up any festivity. Herrera embraced a bee theme in many facets, from life-size embroideries of the insect on an evening gown to abstract honeycomb patterns on a pleated skirt. Graphic black-and-blue garden prints came on a few looks, such as a chic belted sack dress. It had the right amount of whimsy, which played into her catchphrase of the season: “Bee Happy.”
